High impact information on stil

  • The Drosophila gene stand still (stil) encodes a novel protein required for survival, sexual identity and differentiation of female germ cells [1].
  • The similarity of the mutant phenotypes of stil to that of otu and ovo suggests that the three genes function in a common or in parallel pathways necessary in the female germline for its survival, sex determination and differentiation [2].
  • Using P[stil+] transgenes, we show that stil and a closely localized gene are involved in the modification of the ovarian phenotypes of the dominant alleles of ovo caused by heterozygosity of region 49 A-D [2].
